Improved JIRA integration for TestRail released

We are happy to announce that we just released an improved JIRA integration as part of TestRail 2.7.1, a new version of our test management tool. JIRA is one of the most popular issue tracking tools among TestRail users and we worked on a new defect plugin for JIRA’s new REST web service API.


The new integration requires JIRA 5.x or later and comes with the following new capabilities:

  • The new integration now uses JIRA’s REST API
  • We support more built-in fields by default
  • Support for customizing fields in the Push Defect dialog
  • Improved support for JIRA custom fields (no code changes required!)

To use the new integration, simply select the new Jira_REST defect plugin in TestRail under Administration > Integration. If you are still using JIRA 3.x or 4.x you can simply continue using our existing Jira defect plugin and you don’t need to change anything. You can also learn more about the JIRA integration on our website here:

The new integration is already available in all TestRail Hosted accounts and customers can download the new version through their customer portal accounts. If you are using a trial version of TestRail and would like to try the latest version, please contact us.
